Hotel Sisto V

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Ok so yes it is in the berbs of Rome. But if you have half a brain and can catch a train you are only minute from all the attractions. We were a family of 4 adults and 2 children and we had no problems getting around. The rooms were clean and just what we needed for our 5 night stay. The only thing I missed was tea & coffee in the room (this is a very British thing) however we all adapted to the local customs after all we were on holiday. Breakfast was superb and the staff were all very welcoming. If we return to Rome we will aim to return to Hotel Sisto V. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lying in the Roman suburb of Gemelli, the Hotel Sisto V is out of town and a 10 minute train from San Pietro and the Vatican, which does however reflect the price, much lower and better than in the city centre and nearer to the sights. The hotel is in a side street from a busy main road and with the typical mad Roman traffic and cars whipping up and down the road where the hotel is situated, take care when coming and going. Inside, the hotel is a typical city hotel, very polite, helpful and courteous staff and therefore if on a budget and you don't mind being away from the tourist areas, this is ideal. A few eateries nearby, but no comparison with the location of the city centre properties.

So far from the center. The beds are for single and they merge them to king size. The bath room are so small. The serves very good and personly. Clean, and smilling very good. For turest is not a good place becuse its so far from the center. Taxi from the center to the hotle it counts 20£ .

Stayed here for two night for A six nations game this month. Good clean room and friendly service, super market around the courier and close to railway station. Great 24 hour desk service so my late arrival from a delayed flight was no issue.

A good clean hotel with about 35 rooms, which serves sumptuous breakfast. Courteous staff who also speak English at least for my benefit. I would give it 3 1/2 as rating. Located on the outskirts of the town. They could attend to little things like not fitting the fridge in a cabinet to enable ventilation the fridge as is required. Leave at least two chairs in the room. Another major need is to have TV channels in at least in a few other major languages. 'Not sure' below as the services were not advertised.

I booked this hotel through for 6th to 8th October. They started to debit money from credit card before I stay in this hotel and finally they sent a mail that your booking is cancelled for free. i recommend people don't chose Sisto V

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, our first day we arrived in the morning after traveling for 2 days, 30 hours of no sleep we were so tired and maryon was so kind got our room ready and let us check in as soon as he could so we could rest. The breakfast was lovely and the staff helpful, I did notice a negative comment about only the locals getting coffee from the kitchen and I disagree the lady was very nice even though I was English and I was treated the same as everyone there. The room was clean and plenty big enough for the two of us. It is a little out of the city centre about 20 euros in a taxi but it is away from the noise of the city for sleeping and we walked each day to where we wanted to go and saw many beautiful sights so a winner all round. We would stay here again next time we visit Rome. We would highly recommend this hotel

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. We thought it was fantastic. Rooms were modern, very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was available in the room and if it was not all we needed to do was pop down to reception and they were very happy to help us or provide things we needed (eg: corkscrew). While it is not in the city centre it is only two train rides together coming to about 15 mins and cost 2.50 per person. Very very easy route and a good way of avoiding the high cost of central hotels. Also near by is a Carrefour so if you don't like the 6€ breakfast offered by the hotel this is a good way to get some food. They also have a pizza service which they charge 2€ delivery fee but is still quite cheap and very good. The only thing that I can say bad about this hotel is the walls are very thin so you can hear other people moving about. However as long as your neighbours respect that this is not a huge problem at all.

We stayed here for 5 nights as we wanted a hotel that did breakfast and was close to the Vatican. For what we paid I must say that the service was fantastic the rooms clean and well kept. Breakfast was great as there was quite a wide variety available. I would like to say thank you to lady Svitlque who at breakfast would greet us every morning in Italian and say "Buongiorno" with such a nice smile even though I don`t speak Italian. All the front of house service people where always helpful you only needed to ask and they couldn`t help enough. I would like to thank a young man Maryan on front desk as he would work out where we wanted to go everyday and the best way to get there. This is a really good location as there is restaurants and a pharmacy in front of the hotel and a on the left there is a supermarket. If you need any snacks during the night they also have vending machines and hot and cold drinks. We stayed in room 801 and I liked the fact that you could leave your key when you went out and the room had a view was nice. Thank you for a fabulous stay and would definitely recommend you to my friends and anyone wanting to Visit Rome on a budget.

Hotel managers always say "why didn't you say something at the time"...well I'm still in the hotel writing this and I have complained. Had breakfast two days now and I noticed if you are Italian you get food service direct from the kitchen including fresh made to order coffee. My complaint is they don't offer this to western people, so if you are western expect to be discriminated against. The hotel genius at reception argued that I never asked for coffee...well I never knew I could until I noticed three tables this morning all getting the "service", exactly like yesterday. I have to toast stale bread and take hot drinks from a vending machine. There is another problem, the shower doesn't drain and there is a putrid smell in the bathroom and room. I advised this yesterday and nothing was done. Wouldn't recommend this hotel simply based on how they treat non-Italian customers.
